    Is Mark Henry the world's strongest man?

    Yeah, he's strong. His wrestling skills are suspect but every once in a while he does something completely awesome like flip a 250 pound man over the top rope with one arm or lift Batista over his head like I might lift a sack of potatoes.

    But if he was the world's strongest, wouldn't he have won Olympic Gold at the powerlifting competition? I also don't see much mention of him on this site.

    Before everyone jumps on you, let me clear up somethings...

    1) You can not win an Olympic Medal in powerlifting. Powerlifting is not an Olympic sport. Mark Henry competed on the US Olympic WEIGHTLIFTING team in 1992 and did not place.

    2) Mark Henry won the stongman contest at the Arnold Classic in Columbus a couple years ago and just started using the title "worlds stongest man".
    The Met-rx WSM contest is run by a diffrent company and in most cirlces is considered the real world's stongest man contest.

    3) No one doubts Mark Henry's strength. But in wrestling, there is a certain ammount of assistance your opponent gives you when pressing or suplexing them around.

    exactly your number two point is why i consider mark henry to indeed be the worlds strongest man.he set new world records at the arnold that year in a couple different power lifts,i forget which ones in detail though.

    Point number 2 is exactly why Mariusz Pudzianowski is the WSM. When Mariusz retires from stongman I hope Vince makes him an offer and him and Henry can feud over who uses the title.

    Mark Henry

    Well, this morning I was reading an article on him in the Australian Ironman magazine.

    He competed in the 1996 olympics in weightlifting and i think he got dq'd or something, that was why he didn't get a medal, think though, I had been up for 24hrs when reading this.

    In 2002 he won the arnold strongman classic after becoming good again after his stint with then wwf that made him thinner and weaker, cause they made him lose weight.

    His max deadlift is 903lb, apparently only 20lb's short of world record.

    did 885lb for 2 or 3 reps at the arnold comp.

    Not officially the worlds strongest man, as the wsm comp is something different.

    dunno where they got wsm name from pre 2002 in his first wwf run.

    but thats why they were plugging him in '03 as worlds strongest man on smackdown after the brand split

    Obviously you guys have never seen the video of Matt Hardy's deadlift
    "The sun is always gonna rise, and always gonna set and I'll just keep on punching because everyday is gonna bring something different and I just want to be ready for it."
    - Jens Pulver

    If you refer to a fighter who you've never met in real life as "my boy" as though their performance somehow reflects well on you for simply being a fan, you're a lame ass.

    1) 92 and 96 olympics.

    2) no, he didn't

    3) he didn't get a medal bc he didnt place top 3....

    4) no, the world record is 971lbs, so he's 68lbs away
